    Borders On Metro Tiles

    The Tiles on my W8 Start Screen are suddenly showing annoying thick border when I move the cursor over them, so is the user name in the top right corner. How can I stop this?
    Please help!

    So that gray tile border has always been there on my Start screen. I did some looking and don't see a way to control its behavior. You might give Stardock's Decor8 a try: Decor8 - Personalize the Windows® 8 Start screen with Decor8™!

    Thanks for the reply. I never had it originally. I already use Decor8 but thank you. It happened when I changed the window color setting. Just when I had things how I wanted them Grrrrr.....

    would help if you showed a screenshot of the problem...

    sounds like you accidentally turned on an accessibility feature.
